Numero Dos: Dude, Where’s My Car?
With Randy Gregory out for an extended period, the Cowboys are starting to look like a team that absolutely strikes out when it comes to second round draft choices.
The defense was already bad when news circulated that both Gregory and DeMarcus Lawrence were set to miss four games a piece.
Now that Gregory is out, for maybe 10 games or more, the defense went from mediocre to having the carpet underneath them yanked.
The defense was supposed to get better.
Defensive coordinator Rod Marinelli was going to have his say, his mix up, his style of attacking.
But you must wonder: Even the best chess masters lose when their best chess pieces are off to the sidelines.
Who will step up in training camp?
Who will win some jobs?
Is there any gravity left for this defense to recoup?
These are not rhetorical questions. I’m really asking. And writing. I’m worried. Need coffee.
